I'm a thirty-something father, husband, and K-State fan (in that order). I have a limited knowledge of information that most people would find useful, however, I have an inordinate amount of useless trivia and sports-related factoids at my disposal, and I love to write stories that make people laugh (which is ultimately what lead me here).

My role at "Bring on the Cats" is to provide levity, satire, and hopefully a few laughs here and there. I am no journalist, nor do I pretend or care to be. I leave that to much more capable bloggers than myself.

Also, from time to time, I like to challenge the status quo and common thinking because at Kansas State, we love the status quo and group think. Love it.
